"Portraits by Waiters contains images of Sveinn Fannar Jóhannsson posing in front of his own camera in different rooms, on different occasions. When reading the photos one will follow his private daily life and may soon notice that he appears as bored, isolated and eager at the same time. In his exploration of photography as a means of documentation and the contemporary use and status of the medium, Jóhannsson has created a visual diary of himself."

Saddle stitch binding, 90gsm matt

Edition:  25 numbered copies
£7.50 UK / £9.00 International

"Walking in rural and urban landscapes can be compared to peeling back layers of a life and its accumulated experiences and conversations. Perhaps the paths, tracks and pavements we walk on are the traces and routes of earlier marking and re-creation, offering themselves to a trail of almost limitless reinvented narratives. As we tramp our different paths we are also exploring our personal archives as a means of relating our own memories and histories to the spaces we walk in."

Die-Cut Hardcover, hand bound
Digital print

"An incident that happened in the end of XVI century Russia became a starting point for this work: Tsarevich Dimitry, the last son of Ivan the Terrible, died under mysterious circumstances from a knife wound to his throat, with people speculating on the possible various causes for his death. Historians are still trying to find the guilty party 400 years later in order to put an end to this confusing historical detective story. I was intrigued by how images of the past can reform in our minds today."

Edition: 300

"Atlantis by Pedro Ramos is an exercise in dismantling the simple linear notion of time. Its subject is the implosion of the Atlantis hotel in Madeira Island, built in 1972 to capitalize on the burgeoning tourism industry, it was demolished in 2000 to make way for the expanding airport. The implosion was barely a footnote in history."

"Das Tor von Elea (The Gate Of Elea) is made of photographs of the frame of a rusty, eroded gate that I found at the foot of the ruins of the ancient greek city of Elea. For me, it's kind of a self-portrait of the surrounding volcanic landscape of the Cilento (Southern Italy), and surprisingly associated with the work of Parmenides of Elea, the greek philosopher, who lived and taught here once.

"The images in this book were made during a 2 week trip to Japan - to me a totally fascinating but equally strange and enigmatic country, where I don't speak the language and cannot even read a sign. I felt forlorn and alienated while at the same time enjoying the state of being lost. The word „Tobiko“ means „flying fish roe“, which was one of the very few words I could speak and which also happens to be one of my favourite types of sushi."

4 colors offset printing
Edition: 500
35 euro € + shipping

"I associate very closely with this book by David Wilson in a way that is almost affectionate. Not merely because I curated it, but mainly due to the fact that I was a witness to its genesis in London some years ago. An area that I knew fairly well, as I had lived there many years previously, one that is so skillfully recounted in David’s hundreds of shots; it was during those days spent with David in the London spring, discussing his work about the modern city until the early hours and strolling through the suburbs, that we laid the foundations for the dialogue that has brought us thus far." - Steve Bisson

"Stars, heavenly bodies, comets and neurons, weblike structures or strange seeds appear in deep, black spaces, which oscillate between micro- and macrocosm. The pictures seem to deal with current scientific discourses about the brain-like, intergalactic web or findings of extraterrestrial biological entities the stratosphere. Surprisingly they don‘t really show celestial bodies, but surfaces of our daily life: road markings and crosswalks."

Jaclyn Wright - Afterglow

by Jaclyn Wright
published in collaboration with Everything Is Collective
70 Pages, 8.5"x11"
Digital Offset
Edition of 200

"In Afterglow, artist Jaclyn Wright explores the ever expanding edges of our universe. Many of the phenomena integral to our model of the universe, such as black holes, gamma ray bursts, dark matter and dark energy, have not been seen - either because they are not visible at optical wavelengths or simply because the universe is too vast for us to happen to be looking at the right place at the right time. The images contained within AFTERGLOW offer not only a symbolic representation of these phenomena but have been organized by processes similar to those responsible for generating such phenomena in the first place - heat, density, mass, time. Afterglow is compact, orientable, spacelike."
